German born jewelry designer Hans Stern began his career as a jeweler in Brazil, which is a rich natural source of colored gemstones. He started the company H. Stern in 1945 and focused on quality production, beautiful designs centered around colored gemstones, and an innovative marketing campaign that put him on the map. Natural stones incorporated into the jewelry included rubies, emeralds, aquamarines, amethysts, tourmalines, citrines, and topazes. Since its founding, the company H. Stern has evolved with the times and continues to create enchanting works of art in the form of jewelry. The designs appeal to a worldwide market, and the name H. Stern has become synonymous with beauty, quality, and elegance.
This fabulous ring from the Retro (ca1940s) era is a signed piece by designer H. Stern! Made of platinum, this striking ring has a swooping, wave-like design encrusted with sparkling diamonds and luscious rubies. At the center of the piece are two large diamonds, bordered by a row of smaller diamonds at the top and bottom edges of the ring. At the top of the rolling "wave" design is a row of calibrated rubies in a channel setting, adding a wonderful pop of color. A chevron cutout at one shoulder adds to the asymmetrical appeal of the design. The sides and back of the band are smooth platinum, and the inside of the shank is stamped with the official H. Stern hallmark in the shape of a star. This bold and eye-catching ring is a very fashionable piece that captures the creative spirit of Retro era jewelry, and the aesthetic appeal of H. Stern's designs. It would make a stunning addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 7.25 but could be easily resized.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting and all of the diamond and ruby stones are intact.
